Chimney Caps & Damper Contractors For All LI

Expert Chimney Inspection Contractors Near Calverton

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted elements of a house. Your chimney tends to not receive the thought or the concern usually accorded other alarming household systems. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather will be a potential safety hazard. Weather-damaged lining systems, flue obstructions and loose masonry materials all present a complication to buildings.

Haphazardly lined chimneys might cause a number of costly structural and cosmetic dilemmas for the homeowner and also create potentially critical safety hazards. Masonry products deteriorate quickly when exposed to the extreme freeze/thaw processes of Calverton, in which moisture that has penetrated the materials periodically freezes and expands causing undue stress. While most stone is not affected by water penetration, large amounts of mortar are required to bond the stone properly. Chimney caps, also called rain covers, are probably the most inexpensive preventive measure that a consumer might employ to prevent water penetration and issues to the chimney. Installing chimney caps and dampers may protect your chimney and maintain a safe chimney damper. Our pros only send fully-trained chimney cleaning fully-trained techs to your structure that can live up to the guidelines of the CSIA (Chimney Safety Institute of America) and the NCSG (National Chimney Sweeps Guild), the two regulatory organizations for the chimney industry in the United States. For a metal, brick or fabricated chimney repair consultation call or text us at 631.388.7555.

One of the least expensive parts of the chimney venting system is the one that may prevent some of the most pricey issues. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call us for an estimate now! Every chimney sweep knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Chimney caps come in all different varieties, shapes, sizes and materials. In especially windy areas chimneys also will prevent downdrafts by blocking crosswinds from entering the chimney. Chimney dampers can help prevent water penetrations, heat loss and keep you warm and saving you money. When closed, the damper serves as a chimney cap and with a slight pull of the chain it releases the spring-loaded top into the open position when you’re ready to enjoy a nice fire. It’s sometimes hard to think how industrious animals and birds might be over the summer crafting a wonderfully cozy nest right inside your chimney.

Rain is moisture and moisture is an enemy of a healthy fireplace and flue. Chimney liner tiles and mortar could crumble and crack leading to serious leaks. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. Of course, proper chimney cleaning and maintenance are still recommended annually.

Our chimney repair and installation craftsmen are very knowledgeable about a large variety of types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water initiates more weakening than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and eats away at the mortar. It’s such a common issue , raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats try to make their structure in your chimney. Chimneys might block proper ventilation and even enter your home, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids might keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace could spew sparks out into the environment, onto the roof or nearby flammable materials. Stray sparks might be stopped cold by the meshing cover that is a component of all of our chimney caps.

LI Chimney Contractors For All Chimney Chimney Lining Replacements

The method chosen or recommended for your chimney can depend on the type of deposits. The Thermocrete process coats the inside of the chimney from top to bottom with a highly durable ceramic sealant. Thermocrete has undergone rigorous UL Listing and it is an approved liner for gas and oil. It conforms to any shape, size and length of the chimney and become a non-destructive chimney lining system which is corrosion-proof, flame and heat resistant, airtight liner with a rigidity of a steel. A stainless steel chimney liner is air and water tight.

This unique alloy is designed specifically to resist acids coming from gas appliances in the flue and extreme stresses of hot and cold cycles. Liners in chimneys serve three main functions. Liners protect the masonry from the corrosive byproducts of combustion. In the tests, it was determined that if the flue gases were allowed to penetrate to the brick and mortar, the result would be a reduction in the usable life of the chimney. As the mortar joints erode, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles and dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide can leak into the living areas of the structure. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a precisely-sized flue to perform exactly. Our major role is to remove flue deposits and evaluate the total condition of the chimney system.

Our duty is to provide recommendations that could improve the safety and efficiency of your appliance and venting system. Chimneys should be cleaned when accumulations of soot and creosote approach or exceed 1/4 inch. Accumulations of glaze in excess of 1/8 inch should be removed. We employ various cleaning methods to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney estimates are the only way to know when the chimney is in need of fixing.

Several of the most common chimney cleaning plans that we provide follow:

Standard Sweep. This is the standard or normal cleaning method and involves the use of brushes to clean the flue. A powerful, well filtered vacuum is used to prevent soot and creosote from entering the property. This type of cleaning is effective for soot and ordinary creosote deposits but has little effect on glaze deposits.

Mechanical Sweeping. Mechanical cleaning involves the use of wire brushes, plastic cables or special chains rotated at high speed by an electric motor. Mechanical cleaning is often employed to remove hard creosote or glaze deposits. In some cases where it’s impossible to clean the flue by standard or mechanical sweeping it is necessary to use chemicals that help loosen and dissolve heavy creosote and glaze deposits. These cases are hardly ever the case – but necessary in some situations, a clean sweep of your chimney may remove all of the soot, creosote and blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber and shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases can be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved material that could resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature necessary to the class of the chimney service.

Chemical cleaning: This calls for two visits – sometimes even three – if necessary. Our chimney craftsmen could usually be done in less couple of hours and may make sure your house does not get soiled or messy around the areas worked in. Our masons pride ourselves on “no mess” top notch job by doing a great job with minimal interruption to an owner.
